. we saw that before with newt gingrich and bill clinton. and in clinton's second term, they did actually get stuff done. they worked it out between them. but does the president have that kind of relationship with john boehner, say, where we can feel optimistic that they're going to have a very different kind of relationship but can actually be more effective? >> i think there's a different kind of dynamic that speaker boehner has to deal with. i don't know him personally, but his reputation is that he can get deals done, but then he has to sell them in a caucus, some whom, a minority, but a vocal minority of whom are very rigid indeed. so i think the speaker has an opportunity to show his more magnanimous leadership and to lead the whole of the house, and not just his caucus. and as he does that, i think his relationship, not just with the president, but with the general public will improve, and i hope it does. >> one of the issues he's going to face is gun crime, gun control, gun violence, generally. he's been generally audacious in terms of the proposals he's put forward. ther
was very interesting to hear hillary clinton there put mali, algeria and al qaeda quickly in that same paragraph. linking those concepts. because the state department has been concerned as she has been in shing algeria to take a more active role in trying to control al qaeda. because they have been building out what is feared to be a command and control center. within northern mali. that is to say there are weapons coming from libya, through algeria, down into mali and there is a worry that this could become another afghanistan. >> rose: and for analysis of algeria and mali we turn to max boot, jennifer cook, and peter pham. >> the ramification of what happened in algeria and the strikegain the gas installation there and the hostages being taken there really opens this up and internationalizes it with a number of year mean citizens taking u.s. citizens and japanese as well. so the events of this last week, the french incursion, the islamists move south and the taking of the gas installation in algeria really puts a whole dramatic new spin on this and adds momentum to the whole problem.

of state hillary clinton addressed the situation earlier today in a joint press conference she had with the president of somalia. sheikh mohammed. >> now let me say the situation is very fluid. it's in a remote area of al geria near the libyan border. the security of our americans who are held hostage is our highest priority but of course we care deeply about the other algerian and foreign hostages as well. and because of the fluidity and the fact that there is a lot of planning going on, i can to the give you any further details at this time about the current situation on the ground. but i can say that more broadly what we are seeing in mali n algeria reflects the broader strategic challenge, first and foremost for the countries in north africa, and for the united states and the broader international community. >> rose: joining me from washington margaret brennan state department correspondent for cbs news. welcome. >> good to see you, charlie. >> tell me more about the attitude at the state department about alger ya, the link with mali and what might be coming. >> i think it was
situation on the ground. >> brown: even this afternoon, as secretary of state hillary clinton suggested, the situation in algeria remained confused. the focus was this natural gas compound in the sahara desert seen here in footage from last month. the vast, natural gas facility at in amenas is owned in part by b.p. and located just 60 miles from algeria's border with libya. islamists apparently led by this man-- mokhtar belmoktar-- attacked the plant yesterday, claiming they took 41 foreign hostages, including seven americans. early today, the algerian military stormed the sprawling site, as the militants were attempting to leave with the hostages. hours later, the country's communications minister told algerian radio, "an important number of hostages were freed and an important number of terrorists were neutralized and we regret the few dead and wounded, but we don't have numbers." u.s. officials said an american drone watched the operation from overhead, but the algerians refused u.s. military assistance. confusion reigned, the militants claimed 35 hostages died, while algerian state

of somalia. secretary of state hillary clinton calls the official recognition a milestone in somalia's fight against islamic extremists. somalia's president was in washington for the announcement. the u.s. had not recognized somalia since 1991 when war lords overthrew the government and a civil war followed. >>> well, first lady michelle obama was in fine form celebrating her 49th birthday. the white house says the president and mrs. obama dined with friends last night at an italian restaurant in washington's upscale georgetown neighborhood. earlier in the day, the first lady debuted her hairdo, featuring new bangs in a twitter picture posted online. we'll see if it's featured during the next several days of inaugural festivities. >>> the preparations and parties for the president's big day are well under way. nbc's traci potts has the details. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. there are going to be a lot of people here in washington. we're expecting between 600,000 and 800,000. while that pales in comparison to the nearly 200 million we saw four years ago. hotels are certainly filling up
letting french jets use their airspace to attack militants in mali. hillary clinton just spoke to the algerian prime minister. what did she say about that conversation? >> she just spoke at the state department. she said that the hostages are still in danger. it is an ongoing situation. there was not a lot of clarity yesterday about what was happening at the facility but it is still ongoing. she also said she offered more counterterrorism help to the al swreerians, help they have already provided to the algerians suggesting there is help within the country, but that is something that the algerians have rebuffed. >> i spoke with the algerian prime minister again this morning to get an update on this very difficult situation, and to underscore again that the utmost care must be taken to preserve innocent life. >> reporter: untold members of hostages were killed when the algerians opened fire on a convoy of five vehicles as the hostage takers tried to leave the bp complex. the algerians were given the fly out wounded today. they say a c-130 is heading toward a air base in italy. t
of somalia. hillary clinton is giving a news conference, the peg as to why she is speak. as she was speak, she also spoke a bit about the hostage situation under way at this bp facility in algeria that involves as many as seven americans being held hostage. here's what she said. >> i can say that more brudly what we are seeing in mali and algeria reflects the broader strategic challenge first and foremost for the countries in north africa and for the united states and the broader international community. instability in mali has created the opportunity for a staging base and safe haven for terrorists. we had success as you know in degrading al qaeda and affiliates, leadership and actions, in afghanistan and pakistan. we have seen the great cooperation led by african troops through the un mission that you were just discussing in somalia. let's make no mistake. there is a continuing effort by the terrorists whether they call themselves one name or al qaeda to try to destroy the stability and the peace and security of the people of this region. >> she mentioned al qaeda there. a little bit as
and michael waldman, former speech writer for president clinton. good to see both of you. kings, monarchs, all in the eye of the beholder. republicans are angry because this is executive action and some might say look, if you can do a lot of these things through enforcement, why wouldn't you do that first. indeed, that is a part of what he's going to do but there is a point here that some say there's between 300 and 20,000. i don't know why the range is so broad. anyway, of gun laws in this country. isn't this outrage just political? >> part of the issue is that whenever you have a party that's out of power, they are concerned about the abuse of executive power. when you have a democratic president, republicans are upset about it. when you have a republican president, that republican president will tend to use executive action as well to get around congress. so i think that that's natural to some extent that there's going to be that outrage and that it's selective outrage. i will also say, however, that there are few things the president has the discretion to do. for example, look into gun res
the announcement alongside secretary of state hillary clinton in washington. >> somalia is part of the commission on the community and part of the world. somali and the united states are a model for democracy of the freedom of people, of the development of the human and this model we are going to pursue as the rest of the world. so the relationship was there in the past. it's now there and today i'm here standing in front of you trying to improve that relationship in the context of the coming realities in somalia, in the region and the country to africa. >> there's been a sharp rise in the number of murders in the mexican capital just in the last few weeks. the government is saying that it's part of normal crime trends but others think drug gangs have begunfighting in the city. >> we are in one of the most violent neighborhoods in mexico city and police are stopping vehicles looking for weapons to see if anybody has contraband. this surge and violence in recent days in mexico city has some business leaders openly questioning if that means drug cartels are operating and perhaps fighting here in th
. hillary clinton was there in october and talked about a potential situation with mali which we all know has become very volatile and you have the french who have gone in there which reportedly is why this operation, this kidnapping operation was taking place. the kidnappers said they were doing that in solidarity for their people in mali. they were angry, they said, that algeria was allowing french planes to overfly algeria and go into mali to carry out that operation. now, whether that's true, i mean, it could be, or it could also have been, as some u.s. officials are indicating, kind of a preplanned operation. after all, we understand that these people came in from libya into algeria. and the group, by the way, as we also know, is led by a man who's notorious for kidnapping, he's made millions of dollars, kidnapping, et cetera. >> the news that barbara brought to us just before i came to you, jill dougherty, a u.s. drone, an unmanned drone has flown over this bp air field collecting intelligence information and the fate of the hostages as we await news on that. keep us posted as well.
for the first time in more than 20 years. secretary of state hillary clinton is expected to formally make the announcement in a meeting with somali president mohamed in washington. the move will come just days after the u.s. took part in a failed attempt by france to rescue a captured secret agent inside of somalia. the u.s. military has confirmed it's halted the transfer of detainees to some afghan prisons over ongoing abuses including torture. the obama administration resumed the transfers last year after pausing them in the wake of a 2011 united nations investigation that found widespread abuses. despite its qualms with the afghan military's handling of detainees, the u.s. continues to hold prisoners without charge or trial at afghanistan's bagram prison. the united nations says it has received permission from syria to expand efforts to feed the estimated 2.5 million people suffering from hunger during syria's international -- internal crisis. on wednesday, the world food program executive director says collaboration with local partners could mean the delivery of aid to an additional 1
was there in the white house in 1994 when president clinton got an assault weapons ban through. very important breakthrough. >> he got it but lost the house. >> he lost the house. he sort of won the battle but lost the war. in president obama's case, he may well be in a situation where he is going to lose the battle, but win the war. and he is going to win the war of public opinion. >> you think this could actually turn the house? >> i think this could be an element in shoring up his base and getting people to come out in 2014. his problem -- >> so even if he loses he doesn't get the assault weapons. >> yes. >> but this is a play to the base strategy, not a pragmatic sort of legacy seeking. he may be trying to seek a legacy by spending political capital and getting an assault weapons ban. but let me just tell you, we all know, second term president sis oftentimes are legacy-seeking. >> did the nra go too far with this ad, do you think, margaret? >> absolutely. the nra does absolutely no favors for themselves when they do that. first of all, they are playing to the president's strategy. the pre
. the welfare reform program work. the greatest decrease in child poverty in america came under bill clinton with a republican congress in the late 1990's. that is just a fact. jeffrey is shaking his head. no, it is a fact. the lowest level of black children in poverty in history was 1997. you could make an argument that having a welfare system shift toward opportunity would work. >> i'm going to give you all the time you need. before that, what would you say then to those who read the "new york times" stories when they did to review 15 years after bill clinton's welfare to work program, that women and children were falling faster into poverty than anybody else? [applause] i too was the program that helped push them in there? were they wrong? -- it was that program that helped push them in there? were they wrong? >> yes, but let me carry you two steps further. i have been working with a former california assembly leader on a project state-by- state to get people out of prison if they are there for non-violent crimes, to get them brought back into society. you cannot discuss how we will solve
